Texas Education Telecommunication Network announced the deployment of Noction Intelligent Routing platform in its Dallas PoP. The main purpose behind implementing Noction’s route optimization technology was to improve its commodity internet service provided to Education Service Centers in Texas.
Since its inception in 1996, the Texas Education Telecommunications Network (TETN) has provided video, voice, and data services among the 20 Texas Education Service Centers (ESCs) and the Texas Education Agency.
Besides providing high-speed broadband connections and services among the Education Service Centers, TETN also provides commodity internet via 4 upstream providers from their PoP in Dallas. To ensure the best internet connectivity for the large ECS employee base and the connected school districts, TETN deployed Noction’s real-time solution for internet routing optimization. With Noction IRP, TETN is able to proactively eradicate network anomalies and automate multiple manual mechanisms that used to consume engineering time and effort.
“In the case of commodity internet, the ESCs have the option of choosing any other provider, therefore we need to stay competitive and provide the best possible service”, said Lee Williams, Network Engineer at TETN. “With Noction IRP we are able to ensure that our network performs at its full capacity by routing traffic across best possible paths while having minimum engineering input”.
